Capsule Hotel Bali - New Seminyak, Seminyak, Indonesia

27th Jun 2016

Can't express how much I hated it. Security decent, beds very comfortable. People are AWFUL. Staff super annoying. People constantly using hair dryers in room after midnight, playing loud music at 3am, staff don't do anything, only common space is the bar, if you room attaches to the bar you won't get any sleep. Wifi is dreadful. Drunk people vomiting in my room. Left early and didn't care that I lost the money. Stay elsewhere if you want non-annoying people.

The wifi is in & out and you get some bugs, being near the jungle. If you can't deal with those, in exchange for the friendliest, nicest place you've ever stayed with great views, amazing & cheap food, and tons of fun, I don't know what to tell you. I was so sad to leave.

One of the best hostels I've stayed at, and definitely the best in China. Staff were very friendly and eager to help with anything I asked. Hostel was impeccably clean, great facilities, very modern, spacious, friendly environment...lots of good things. The only way it could be better is being a little closer to a subway station and the address/directions aren't very clear when arriving, so make sure to look at the map (it's in an alley behind the main street).

Didn't like it at all. 1-most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in. 2-they don't give you key to outside door, so I got locked out one afternoon. 3-only 1 bathroom for the whole hostel, so there's usually a line for shower/toilet. 4-the main employees speak 0 English and can't help you with any bus/train info, tours, etc. 5-the husband smokes inside the hostel and comes into your room making noise in the mornings while you're sleeping. Sure, it's cheap, but I didn't like it a

This is a really great hostel, and I will definitely be staying here again, when I come back through Beijing. The staff are really friendly, it's a great location, and the vibe is awesome. The beds are quite thin (hard), and the internet is really in-and-out, but it's not a huge deal. Loved this hostel!

Don't forget your clothes in the bathroom after a shower. The cleaning lady will throw them away without asking whose they are. Other than that, this hostel is really great. Great location, friendly staff, decent breakfast. I'd stay here again.

Amazing that a woman who speaks nothing but Russian is successfully running a great hostel simply by extreme friendliness. I managed to get tour help, directions, and everything else I needed through hand gestures, Google Translate, and some charades. It's amazing how great everyone staying there said their experiences were, despite having the language barrier. Great hostel, great location, and impeccably clean. Also, I got a going away card: "May all your dreams come true." Awesome.

I've never stayed at a hostel with so many rules and demanding that you sign the agreement as soon as you arrive. It wasn't anything ridiculous, and I agreed with them, but it was very pushy and started everything on a bad vibe. The staff acted like you were bothering them when you had questions, and the atmosphere in the hostel was basically that everyone tried to not be there. It didn't feel friendly at all. I've been to Moscow before, and this was definitely not somewhere I'd stay aga

Great great great location, very friendly staff, the dorms are great. The only thing I will caution you about here is that people tend to stay up talking/dancing very loudly right outside the dorms, and you may have to go yell at them. However, the staff is great, the views are awesome, and I had a great time here. Wish I could've stayed longer.

Cold showers only, staff is rarely present, and the security is none. USE THE LOCKERS. There are no locks at all - not into the hostel, not into your room. Staff is rarely at the desk, which means that anyone could walk into the hostel and go through your belongings. Staff is also not around much, which is rough when you need information for buses. Cleaning lady is the nicest person ever.

7th Nov 2015

It was clean, conveniently located, and has free breakfast, but I didn't like it. 1-bunk beds are old/squeaky & not attached to the walls. If the other person moves at all, it shakes a lot & you wake up (I'm a heavy sleeper!). 2-hostel is enormous, with tons of guests, so it creates a climate of indifference. I've never stayed at a hostel where everyone ignored one another. 3-Because there are so many guests, everyone gets buzzed in without question/ID--bad for this neighborhood.

Very loud, even in your room with doors/windows closed. Recommend to bring ear plugs. If you are not a partier, this is probably not a good hostel for you. It was a bad fit for me.

Felt like visiting my grandmother. Billie is really sweet and made everyone feel welcome. She made you feel like family, rather than just a paying guest. Coffee and warm conversation were always available, and the guest book at the hostel is full of "best hostel experience ever" reviews. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Fairbanks.

Staff are amazing! Definitely the friendliest group I've ever encountered while traveling.

If I go back again some day, I'm definitely staying here.

No requirement to pass the front desk or hostel personnel before proceeding to the rooms, so this is a security concern; the rooms have individual locks and lockers are available, though, so this is good from a security standpoint. Great location, good price, very friendly staff, and a free breakfast - I'd stay here again.

It's odd that there is a buzzer on the street and you must request to be let into the building, but then you can go to the sleeping rooms/computer room/toilets without having to go past the front desk or past any employees. I found this odd.

Staff would smoke in the hotel lobby, which was also the only place to watch TV, eat or use the internet, so that was quite annoying. Also, the dorm rooms do not have locks on the doors, which I didn't like. Other than this, the staff was friendly and helpful, the dinners are GREAT, and the free shuttle to/from Petra every day is a huge perk.

During our 4 days at this hostel, we encountered 3 different employees. 2 of them were phenomenal. 1 of them spoke less English than I speak Russian, and communicating with him to ask where some of the most common tourist attractions were was extremely difficult. I'm not one of those people who thinks everyone should speak fluent English, but a hostel employee should have at least a medium ability at a 2nd language. If he could speak German or French or Spanish, that would work for me, also.

This is the first hostel I've stayed at where there were lots of kids. Many hostels I've stayed at have a rule about kids - either not allowed or only 1 or 2 kids per adult. This was a group of a few dozen kids with only about 3 adults. It provided for lots of noise. They would be running around in the halls, up and down the stairs, banging on doors, talking very loudly - and this woke us up several times during the night. The only negative side to our stay was that staff didn't intervene.
